americans to pay a little more so that we can reduce the deficit and make investment in education, research, and guess what? a bunch of folks running for congress at the time said this is going to hurt the economy. this is going to kill job creation. if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates has to be running for president right now. it turns out his bath at their math was just as bad back then as it is now. by the end of bill clinton's second term, americans created 23 million new jobs. poverty was doubt and the deficit became the biggest surplus in history. colorado, we know the ideas. we know that our ideas work. we also know those that don't work. eight years after bill clinton left office. his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the result was falling in comes and record deficits and the slowest job growth in half a century. and an economi
to get a broader deficit in place combining the tax cuts, extending the bush era tax cuts? umax. buerkle: the house voted with bipartisan support. we don't know what the regulation is going to be coming down type. it will disparately affect the middle class or it will affect all americans in an economy that is so fragile. it will be a mistake to raise taxes. the last congress in 2010 knew that. we don't raise taxes when the economy is fragile. it will impact businesses and job creation and what we want to do is encourage them and help them grow so they can hire and get our economy back on track. >> moderator: sea would get us back on track for now and beyond? buerkle: public. rozum: i would support progressives marginal tax rates on the top 10%. those that have done well in our economy in the past 40 years. i support the eisenhower rates. with the eisenhower rates we could raise $1.2 trillion people need to be put back to work with money in their pockets. i also support cutting the military budget by 50%. we can protect small businesses and farms by not raising taxes. when we get over a
office, we had moved past 20 states in job creation and turned a $3 billion deficit into a $2 billion rainy day fund. whether in public office or at a private business, i did not ask people what party they belonged to. i asked them what ideas they brought to the table. as governor, i met with leaders of both parties to find common ground. that is what i will do as president -- and i will start on day one. on my first day in office, i will also send five bills to congress and sign five executive orders. every one of them will help us create jobs. and that is just the start of my plan to create 12 million jobs in my first term alone. every piece of legislation and every executive order will help us achieve five important goals. first, we will achieve north american energy independence by the year 2020. second, we will make sure our students and workers have the skills they need to succeed. third, we will promote trade the works for america and crack down on countries like china when they cheat. fourth, we will cut the deficit from day one and balance our budget within 10 years. and fina
in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it comes down the pipe -- [inaudible] right now we have a situation where the pentagon is saying that we don't need as much money as mitt romney is proposing. that it's not necessary, number one. they are not lugging the restraint, but there is a general attitude that we have to do more with less, let's put our heads together and figure out how to do that. a great panic that this is going to make us a third-rate military. so right now it seems like there is room to cut where you can. they have a stake in the matter to te
with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they want to implement are so great why didn't they work in the last 10 years? we have a lot more information in our society today. that was not that long ago when we experienced almost a complete economic collapse. the president has been able to help dig us out of the whole and get us moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it said we ill create over a million new jobs. get some money into the road and bridge projects that we need done in this country. make sure local governments are not laying off police, fire, and teachers. let's move the economy forward and create jobs. make investments into the new energy sector, research and development so we can create the jobs of the future. so places like ohio can keep going with what it is that we have been doing and build on the auto industry and build on the steel industry and get into the new economies. we are hitting a roa
any group that opposed him. he promised he would cut the deficit in half. instead he doubled it. i know he says he wants to do something to help the budget. but i learned in order to balance a budget, it starts -- it helps to have actually had a budget. to start with a budget. and -- [cheering] >> you can't balance a budget unless you start with one, and he actually put out a proposal this last year for the house and the senate to look at. there are 535 members of the house and senate combined. do you know how many people voted for his budget? zero. no one voted for his budget. paul ryan and i are going to get america on track to have a balanced budget. he took on -- during his campaign, another big promise. he said he would save medicare. he would pre serve and it protect it and save it from pending insolvency. in stead he cut medicare by $716 billion. he said he was going to have unemployment today down to 5.4%. we're nine million jobs short of that and he has no plan to get this economy going again to put americans to work. you notice there's some numbers he doesn't speak about.
to do with jobs but it does. it relates to debt and deficits which and that is if you're an entrepreneur thinking of risking your live ever life savings to start a business or build a factory, if you think america is on the road to greece or italy or spain, you're less likely to invest in america. and right now we spend a trillion more than we take in. it's bad for the economy. i think it's immoral for us to pass on debt like that to our kids and i will get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] and number five, is to be a champion of small business, help small business grow and thrive. by the way, i didn't study small business alone. i've lived small business. i know how business works and i want to use that experience and that skill to help small businesses across the country. and there are a lot of ways to do that. let me mention just a couple. one relates to our taxes. do you realize that the taxes paid by a small business in america can be as high as 35%, that's the income tax and then if you add other taxes t payroll tax, the state income tax if you have one, real estate
on obamacare that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. and then he said he would bringlet unemployment rate down to 5.25 percent and we learned on friday 7.9 nine million jobs short of what he promised and unemployment. and unemployment today is higher than when barak obama took office and by the way, he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare. he did not. rather he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. the list goes on. and he said he would low are health prem yups by $2000. and instead went up $3000 a family. and average american family pays $2000 more for gasoline than when president obama was elected. and i mention one more thing. he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues. he's not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with either the republican leader of the house and senate since july so he's made the divide wider. people wonder how is it he fell so short of what he promised? he never led. or worked across the aisle and never truly understood how jobs are
? >> it is amazing to me you can stand here having voted for chilean dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest increase in american history and say we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending. with respect to cut, a cap, and balance, capping the ability of congress to spend money we do not have, balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra. that is why support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> it is one of the races you can follow on c-span, c-span radio, and online. >> as hurricane sandy proceeds, there are still in the bates across the country. rhode island will hold a debate between david and the republican challenger. our coverage of that debate begins thursday at 7:30 p.m. eastern. mitt romney asked supporters to help victims affected by hurricane sandy. he was joined by a congressman from ohio. this is 37 minutes. ♪ >> avon lake. i say, avon lake is fired up today. thank you all for being here. and i want to thank mary taylor to make sure ohio meets its
result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is wha
-dollar deficits in washington? how about four more years of gridlock in washington? there's no question in my view that we really can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years, but our chant is this -- five more days, five more days. that's our chant. [ cheers and applause ] [ chanting ] you know, we're going to have to come up with a better slogan tomorrow, or a different one at least. i know the president's been trying to figure out some way to suggest he's got some new ideas. because with all these people out of work, with 3 million more women in poverty today than when he took officer, with 15 million more people on food stamps than when he took office, he's got to find something to suggest it's going to be better over the next four years. so he came up with an idea last week which is he's going to create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. [ cheers and applause ] i mean, unfortunately what you've seen before your very eyes is a cam
speaker speaker of the house, for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels caiman is a couple of years later on budgets that you helped to write, indiana was a 700 million-dollar state in debt, and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things. i would just like to know for my colleagues how we are going to make sure we can preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> congressman, if you would've spent the last 12 years in indiana rather than in congress come up you would know that our balanced budget has to be done according to the constitution. i have balanced and produced bipartisan budgets. oddly, you talk about fort wayne's own day long in our lieutenant governor. i find it almost laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you heard it not once, not twice, but five times, congressman. you voted and the results increased the deficit by $200 billion. >> find key house and senate in government races from across the country. find it at c-span.org/2012. >> we have a debate in rhode island's f
, it is our deficit. it is $16.20 trillion today. at the first debate it was $16 trillion. i agree with heidi, we cannot have partisan politics. the way we saw this is we have a budget. the senate has not had a budget for three years. that is where the partisanship come said. if we are on to solve a small business problem, the first step is you need a budget. harry reid has refused to bring a budget up for three years. we cannot solve this budget problem that alone ballots at if we cannot have the senate majority leader, to my opponent has endorsed to try to work out a solution. this is the most critical thing, and here is how we saw that -- number 1, we need a budget that comes to closure so people can see we are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature
a year 2000 with -- took a surplus from the year 2000 and turned it into deficit by imposing the bush tax including millionaires. what governor romney is proposing -- let's return to those policies, the eight years of george bush. to the wealthy. also when president obama took office in january of 2009, we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month. 700,000 jobs a month we were losing when george bush left office and president barackwe will hear tomorrow the new jobs report, we are creating over 100,000 jobs. 5.2 million new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery, and president obama has beenthis is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory health care for everyone -- his crowning achievement. what
ideological policies, blow a hole in the budget deficit, and the economy collapses? i would like to ask those people. if these policies were so great, why did they not work in the last 10 years? i realize we have a lot more and permission in our society today, but it was not that long ago -- there is a lot more information in our society today. the president has dug us out of that hole and has as moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it says will create over 1 million new jobs. gives some money to the roads and bridges projects that we need done and make sure local governments are not laying off police, fire, and teachers. let's move the economy forward and create jobs, making investments into the new energy sector, investments in research and development to create the jobs of the future so that places like ohio can keep going with exactly what it is that we have been doing and build on the auto industry, the steel industry, and get into these new industries. we are heading a roadblock because, quite frankly, there is an ideologica
